Pine Essential Oil supports healthy respiratory system*. Add it to your bath and sauna to de-stress and rejuvenate! First investigated by Hippocrates, the father of Western medicine, pine is soothing for stressed muscles and joints when used in massage.
I love the smell of all the Christmas tree oils but I have to say Pine is my least favorite. But, they are all energizing to the mind, yet relaxing to the body which we all can use on a daily basis!
Pine Essential Oil has been used traditionally for to support the respiratory system. It shares many of the properties of Eucalyptus globulus. And is found in a professionally made blend called RC (also contains three varieties of eucalyptus).
Pine oil is also soothing stressed muscles following exercise. And is often added to baths and saunas for mental and emotional fatigue.
Lastly, I would like to mention that pine essential oil is one of those oils that are frequently adulterated (changed). Turpentine, an inexpensive filler, is often added to commercial household and animal products. So please be careful as adulterated oils are toxic to the body and to our animals!

What is the Genus Species? Pinus sylvestris
Why is this information important? There are over 100 species of Pine some. Additionally, there are several parts of the tree that can be used as well. Therefore, it is always important to know the genus species and what part of the plant the oil is distilled from.
Remember, many companies may use a substitute species or a combination of species that may not offer the therapeutic grade oil.
Even though they may share some similar properties they are not at all the same. Too many companies label essential oils generically which means none of us know what they are really putting in the oils they sell to us!
Where is the name derived from? The name Pine comes from its Latin scientific name "pinus" meaning "pine".
Why is this information so important? It's not, it's just a fun fact!
What Part of the Plant is Used? Needles
What is the ORAC Value? Either it hasn't been tested or it's too low to report! Anyway, I couldn't find this information anywhere so if you do, please let me know!
Why know about this number? ORAC stands for Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity. It tells you the antioxidant capacity of a food item. This was developed by the USDA researchers. For instance: Spinach = 1,400; Clove = 1,078,700. Wow! The number for clove is NOT a typo!
